Sports teams across campus have been doing Tik Tok challenges throughout the last few weeks. These challenges are 15 second long clips of people dancing to popular, classic, and sometimes cringeworthy songs.
The challenges started on campus when the volleyball team made a Tik Tok and challenged the Sky Dancers and wrestling program on Twitter to make their own Tik Tok and continue challenging others. Since then, the sports teams have ran with the idea of it. This trend across the organizations has blown up since the first tweet was posted.
Emily Pascale, varsity volleyball player, exclaimed that the team “wanted to do something fun to get others involved and we thought what better way to do that than to do a Tik Tok challenge.”
Tik Tok is a popular app that has short video clips that are entertaining for many people. It is a social media platform for creating, sharing and discovering short music videos. Thousands of people have Tik Tok and use it daily. By passing the challenge on, the sports department has kept it going for many weeks on end.
“Our goal was to eventually get every club/organization to be a part of this challenge to see who could make the best Tik Tok,” Pascale said. “We wanted to spark a little creativity with this challenge and see what teams/clubs could come up with.”
This challenge has now been the most popular trend on campus. Staff, parents, and now admin have now all been getting involved and have been having a blast with this challenge. The trend has extended so far that all the Falcons hope to challenge every organization and staff member at school.
As a result of participating in the Tik Tok challenge, teams across campus have created stronger bonds, and have jump-started further growth of friendships in their organizations.
“It was a way for our team to grow a closer bond with each other while doing something fun and something that took a lot of team bonding,” Sky Dancer Scout Schmidt said.
